      For a time, I was able to offer gastric banding to my public patients at Osborne Park Hospital, but sadly the funding for that initiative has expired. There is still a program at Sir Charles Gairdner Hospital – I am not directly involved, but the last time I checked the waiting list was three years long. Gastric bands are also placed at Joondalup Hospital, but I’m not certain that they have a support program in place.
      Generally, my advice to people is that it has taken decades to reach the position where gastric banding surgery would be desired, and so the best decision is to take up Private Health Insurance to cover it and wait the 12 months required.
      Some people are more impatient than that, and choose to fund it from their savings, from a loan, or from their superannuation.
